SAP has launched a new business transformation service, RISE with SAP, to help organisations transform into intelligent enterprises.

According to the German firm, RISE with SAP provides customers at various stages of digital transformation a completely new way for redesigning processes for enhanced business outcomes.

SAP CEO Christian Klein said: “Geopolitical tensions, environmental challenges and the ongoing pandemic are forcing businesses to deal with change faster than ever before.

“Companies that can adapt their business processes quickly will thrive – and SAP can help them achieve this. This is what RISE with SAP is all about: it helps customers continuously unlock new ways of running businesses in the cloud to stay ahead of their industry.”

As a single offering, the new business transformation service offers a path to the intelligent enterprise for all customers, irrespective of starting point or complexity.

The service is being provided by SAP on a subscription basis.

According to SAP, RISE with SAP will feature a responsible party for service-level agreement, operations, and support.

The company claimed that the comprehensive approach will help firms transform their business, beyond a technical migration to the cloud for facilitating continual transformation.

SAP will provide the new service through its ecosystem of partners that include Accenture, Capgemini, Cognizant, All for One Group, Atos, IBM, HCL Technologies, Infosys, and others.

Accenture SAP business group global lead Caspar Borggreve said: “RISE with SAP provides a path for clients to transform into intelligent enterprises.

“With Accenture’s experience with SAP solutions and cloud deployments, we bring an exceptional combination of industry and functional expertise and innovation at scale to power transformation across every facet of the business.

“We deliver 360ᵒ value through a smart approach that uses automation, existing investments and modern implementation methods to deliver solutions with greater speed and less disruption.”

In another development, SAP has signed an agreement to acquire Signavio, a Germany-based business process management software provider, for an undisclosed price.
